Cards for Friday-Sunday, October 24-26, 2014

Friday's Card is about control again.

Are you trying to control yourself, others or a current situation?

Typically control has a negative connotation, but control isn’t bad, it is just the developing energy field of creation and protection. With mature (developed) energy, we create out of joy, love and inspiration, and we protect our children and others, out of selfless care and compassion. With immature control energy, we create and protect others (and ourselves) out of fear, desperation, insecurity, force or manipulation. Our intentions are good - we want to create good things for everybody. Yet with immature control, the subtle (or not so subtle) motivation is to really fill our own needs and desires; often without considering the other person(s) involved. Yet filling our own needs and desires is a common developmental stage that we may need to go through first before we can give to others. We may want to help and create positive experiences for others or ourselves, but if our control/creation abilities are not mature, we will act before we first understand what the real needs or desires actually are. As we expand in the energy field of security, trust, confidence and competency, (when our cup is full, and we know what the true needs and desires of others and ourselves are), we will create from a place of love, joy and inspiration. And the conscious act of self-protection is rarely needed, because we are living in our maturely expanded energy field where we stand strong and flexible if a storm passes our way. And when we stand in a place of ‘mastery’, no protection is needed at all! (see the card Maturity and Mastery).

If your positive energy field hasn’t matured, and you realize you have a desire to create or protect out of fear, desperation or insecurity, your first impulse will be to ‘control your control’. You may hear yourself thinking, ‘I have to manage my control. I got to learn to trust and feel safe.’ Words like ‘got to, have to, should, must, never, always’, suggest fear, force, panic and desperation. Remember mature control is creating and protecting from ease, love, gentleness and inspiration.

You can transform the energy of fear or manipulation without pushing or force. Start by welcoming in the energy of love, joy, trust, security, confidence, inspiration and competency. Gently and lovingly make any necessary adjustments, and at the same time, value and accept everyone (including yourself) for who they are and where they’re at already. Know that your need to improve, protect and create is a beautiful and worthy act. Take a big deep breathe, relax, and welcome in the inspirational steps that will lead you towards self-love, self-worth, and trust.

As your energy field of love, trust and joy expands, your desire to create and protect will benefit everyone in more delightful ways. Begin to feel the freedom from fear, distrust and insecurity, and trust that everything will turn out for the best. As you mature, you are free to create a life that is filled with ease, joy, peace and abundance!

Saturday's card is about faith.
Faith is trust. Faith is using your mind to help you imagine that everything will turn out for the best. Use your imagination to see, feel and trust that everything will turn out at the highest level to bring you happiness, abundance and love. Have faith in the situation, in yourself, and in life’s creative energy. Worrying, is the absence of faith. When you trust, only then can you put all the doubts and fears in your mind aside.
Trust can also help you when you are torn between two different options. Trust that the right choice will present itself in time. Trust the timing, and trust the process as it unfolds. Faith means waiting at times, and wisdom is using your time creatively and wisely while waiting for a decision, person, thing or opportunity to arrive.
Deep faith often develops after the ‘darkness of night’ --- where dreams were delayed, lost treasures were found or replaced, and challenges were successfully met. Faith doesn’t exempt you from challenging times; faith is the additional resource to help you with them.
Have faith and certainty that your heart and soul’s deepest longings will come to you. Trust that what has been taken away from you no longer has value, because the treasures you truly need and the things that truly belong to you cannot possibly be lost or taken away.
Faith, is knowing that what your heart longs for is already on its way. The creative life source is in tune with your longings, and is already lining things up in the present for manifestation in the future. You can be thankful in advance. For instance, if someone were to give you a check for $1,000, would you wait until you cashed it in order to thank him or her? – No. – You'd go ahead and thank them because you knew you could cash it and the money was on its way. Know that what you long for is coming!
Faith is also taking risks. Now is the time in your life to absolutely trust. There is a tremendous sense of joy and accomplishment when we take the steps to enter a new world.
Faith is also giving when you don’t feel like you can afford to give. Giving and faith go together. It's one thing to give when you've got it to spare – it's another thing to give when you don't even know where the money, energy or love is going to come from. That is a test of faith – giving when you’re not sure you can.
Take care to make sure your faith is not ‘blind faith’. Blind faith is pretending that everything is all right – it is being in denial of reality.
Know that faith and trust can help you in your current situation. With trust, the highest potential opens up. Life is no longer mediocre, and life will start to overflow with magic! Where there is trust there is peace and fulfillment. Today consciously begin to trust others, yourself, and in the process as it unfolds to bring happiness, abundance and love!


***************************
“No heart suffers when it goes in search of its dreams because every second is a search for your divine self.”
– Paulo Coelho
Sunday's card is about purpose.
Purpose

Living your purpose is part of living a fulfilling, rich life.

Your purpose is not some big mystical thing to figure out. Your purpose is simply following what brings your heart happiness, love, peace, joy and beauty.

Your purpose is a calling to fully be your true self, to recognize your innate gifts and share them with the world in a way that brings you joy. When you are not filled with joy, then the purpose of your life is learning, growth and forgiveness to get you back to living and sharing your true self.

Purpose takes place as much in the inner world as it does in the outer. In the inner world, it is who you are. In the outer world, it is what you have come to do, what you will become, and what you are here to express.

In the outer world, ‘do’ whatever creates joy in your life and fills you with love, enthusiasm, strength and other positive things. Everyone has activities they absolutely love to do, and they often make time for them over other responsibilities.

One's passions are the activities that bring them great energy. Spend time with people, situations and activities that bring you joy, love and harmony. If you do the opposite you will become exhausted and lethargic - which will not add beauty to the world. Let go of the things that provide little fulfilment so there is room for love and happiness!

Your deepest joy is your purpose. Your joy will fill the world’s hunger.

Most of us strive to understand our purpose for being here. Without a clear purpose, a person may drift through life following popular pursuits, copying the lives of others, and jumping from job to job, or partner to partner.

The good news is, you already have all the training you need for living your purpose. Your purpose is all of who you are. It is all of your experiences, talents, skills, unique strengths and gifts. All you have to do is share them with the world in a way that brings you joy. There is nothing that you need to change about yourself to fulfill your purpose. You are, and always have been….and always will be…. perfect in every way to fulfill your soul and to fulfill your purpose in the world. For what you have come to accomplish and what you have come to be, you are perfect!

The following lines from the poet/writer/philosopher Kahlil Gibran eloquently tells of how when we give of who we naturally are, just as innocently as we did when we were children, we bring to earth the heaven we are all meant to experience. -

“There are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life, and their coffer is never empty. There are those that give with joy, and that joy is their reward. There are those that give with pain, and that pain is their baptism. And there are those that give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor do they give with mindfulness of virtue. They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breaths its fragrance into space. Through the hands of such as these, god speaks, and from behind their eyes he smiles upon the earth.”

– Kahlil Gibran

There are times when you are weary of all the doing and growing, and your purpose is just to be. To be silent and still, and take in the wonderful smell of apple blossoms as you lay in a meadow, looking up at the open blue sky.

The card Purpose has been drawn to help you understand what purpose means. Your purpose is your innate gifts and the accumulation of all your experiences that you express in a natural and joyful way. Your purpose is not just about what you came to do but to fully develop and express who you are. To fully understand your feelings, needs and longings, and come to fully accept who you truly are………a perfect and significant part of creation!

Card for Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I'm very sorry I didn't get a chance to post anything last week until today.  I ended up having a very bad strep throat and it's taken a lot of focus and energy to try and start feeling better.  Some day I'll crack how to heal me in a moment :D

Wholeness is being all of who you truly are. By integrating and balancing all aspects of yourself and your life, you increase your ability to feel whole. Wholeness is the wide range of experiences, ideas and feelings that everyone has the potential to live and express.

Nurture your wholeness by balancing things such as; work/play, activity/rest, time with others/ time alone... and by developing all your qualities such as; seriousness, humor, patience, assertiveness, gentleness, compassion, courage...etc..

One way to achieve wholeness is by using others as a mirror to see yourself. What qualities or aspects are you seeing in other people that are the same as yours, and what parts appear to be totally different? Do you see qualities in others that you wished you had? For example, do you come across people that are really joyful or creative, and you can’t remember the last time you expressed creativity or joy? By looking at another person’s positive attributes or gifts, you can awaken these qualities or resources within yourself. Also, if you notice a person’s weaknesses, you can acknowledge where you need to make any necessary improvements.

We all know couples who are total opposites. One person is the dreamer - the other is the realist. One is outgoing - the other is reclusive. One partner wants closeness - the other wants space. Being polar opposites gives us the opportunity to appreciate our differences or to balance the polarities in ourselves to fulfill our human potential for wholeness. By seeing these differences in others we have the opportunity to develop these qualities within ourselves. Appreciate each other’s contrasting and complimentary gifts. Don’t call each other down because of differences... remember that for every women who is called ‘too sensitive’, there is a man who wants to express his vulnerability... And for every man who is called a ‘workaholic’, there is a woman who longs to fulfill her purpose and be taken seriously.

People who are very different from us, are reminding us to become more balanced, whole and healthy in who we are, and how we live our lives. Differences are actually doorways into the hidden dimensions of our character and soul. They are the doorways to balance and wholeness, along our journey home.

The card Wholeness reminds you that part of your life, and your full potential as a human being, may need some balancing. Look within to awaken parts of yourself that may require development or admiration, and notice the parts of your life that needs inclusion or exclusion. As you become more integrated, you will deepen your capacity to experience happiness and fulfillment, and you will finally experience the feeling of ‘being at home’ within yourself!

Card for Friday-Sunday, October 10-12, 2014


This card awakens you to the expansive energy shift you are about to experience - or the one you already are in. You are entering through the doorway to a world of great joy, wonder, love and fulfillment! You may have tried to walk through this doorway before but turned around; fearing the unknown or fearing the abundance that is waiting for you. Know that this time you are worthy of these blessings. This time you are open to receive a life of immense bounty and success.

Sometimes we fear the unknown, believing it may be worse than what is already present. Know that you have created this opportunity of expansion because somewhere deep down, perhaps at an unconscious level, you feel it is time to be genuinely happy. Deep down you want a life worth living, and a soul filled with trust, love, enthusiasm, peace and wonder.

Release your deep-rooted fears, and trust that you have the inner wisdom and strength to create more abundance than you could have ever imagined! Try to envision and feel the release of mediocrity, and feel the joy and satisfaction of this expansive shift.

If all you can feel is the heaviness of fear, doubt and worry, realize that the amount of heaviness you experience will be equal to the joy and lightness you’ll feel once you open up to the expansive energy that is available.
Ask for forgiveness for any past transgressions that may have been weighing you down, and ask to be free of any thoughts that may be limiting your potential. Honor your worthiness.

The hard crust of your fears, worries, doubts and your unfulfilling past will loosen, and you will emerge from the soil to feel the sun as it warms your body, heart and soul!

You’ve received this card to let you know that the depths of your soul are bringing about this great expansion so open up and expand to a new level of vision, creativity, love, inner power and glory!

Card for Thursday, October 9, 2014


Your Card - “The Lovers” - This card signals that a significant relationship is on your mind. It may be romantic in nature, or it may be an intimate but platonic friendship. Communication is key right now, and it’s important to develop trust within the relationship. You can safely share your feelings with someone close to you.

This card is appropriate for me today.  I have a wedding to attend tomorrow.  My old babysitter is getting married.  I'm taking my eldest with me.  She's never attended a wedding.   She asked me last night what part is she playing in the wedding.  I truly didn't know how to answer her.  I think she heard the sister of the bride who's her age talk about being in the wedding.  

So tomorrow may be interesting. :)

But it's also the card of communicating.  What have you been doing to be more truthful to yourself and thus with others?    Look at the faces in this card.  It shows a peace and happiness that is internal.  Yes there are two people, but you have to be happy in your own skin in order to find happiness with others.  If you're constantly going on negatively about things in your life.. that brings your life down and who wants to be around those that complain all the time?  Same goes that if your happy.. who wouldn't want to 1) be around someone that happy (it's contagious for those that wish to follow) and 2) it shows the life as something great.. something to be celebrated. 

I'm not saying "bad" things don't happen.. they do.. it's how you get stronger and work on those things that really matter.  Don't dwell in the energy of that situation, see how you can rise above it.  Take a breath and move on.  Know that you can.  Know that there is someone around that does care for you, even if you do not see it.  Learn to laugh and find the joy in life.  You will be glad you did.  And once you do, share that joy with another.  Show them the true way to live :)

Card for Wednesday, October 8, 2014


Your Card - “A New Dawn” - “The worst is now behind you, and positive new experiences are on the horizon.”

I was drawn to pull from the mermaids today because of a cloud formation I saw this morning.  Clearly a mermaid.  Wish I hadn't been driving so I could have gotten a shot of it.  Anyhow, so when I stopped, I pulled this card.  Who wouldn't want this card?

The trick to this card is to keep washing away the negativity (i.e. ego) past memories and guilt.  Work on keeping those things released and work only with positive emotions.

I've been doing that now a week.  I picked up this audio class and been listening to at least one session every morning on the commute to work.  I took it at least a  year ago, but because it's energy it still needs to be recharged as well as moved out for that is stagnant in our lives.  As frightening as releasing old stuff may be, it's time.  No need to keep a hold of those things that no longer suit you.  Move on with love in your heart and spread that wealth.

Good news for me, is that I'm close to completing my Oracle cards.  I've got them all formatted now and what's left is the box and the book.  So hopefully soon I'll be able to start offering some for sale.  I'm excited about this product because they are all full of light and healing to help you.

Card for Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Whatever has been consuming your time and energy is coming to an end, and a whole new level of success has, or is about to come into your life. Because of your willingness to accept the recent challenges of life, you can start celebrating your success!

Your success is also a gift for others - for when you succeed you light up the ‘path of inspiration’ so others can follow.

Success isn’t just about accomplishing something; it’s also your attitude in how you view yourself and your life. Success is viewing yourself in a positive way no matter what the outcome of your plans or goals. It is celebrating the risks you took, and the striving and the efforts you made. Success, in part, is knowing that - all that you are and all that you do - is always enough.

Life is full of endings and new beginnings, and we can sometimes feel sad or empty when things come to completion. Give yourself time and space to release these feelings and replace them with the wonder and enthusiasm of what’s to come.

If you have just accomplished something, it is time to reap the reward! Too often when we reach our goal or task we brush by the celebration because there is always the next thing on our list to accomplish. Take the time to rest a bit and enjoy your success. Really acknowledge your success. Treat yourself in some special way - celebrate and share it with others!

Yet remember not to rest on your laurels too long, this is not your final destination. The journey isn't over yet. There are worlds upon worlds still waiting to be explored!
